Committed to being fair and accountable.
RCDs are established under California law to be locally governed with independent boards of directors. As trusted stewards of public and private funds, RCDs are subject to transparency and accountability laws that require public meetings, open records, annual audits and financial reporting. The Gold Ridge RCD is also committed to instilling justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in its operations.
The RCD’s Catalog of Enterprise Systems is a list of the District’s major business systems except those that are specifically excluded from publication under the statute. The catalog includes the rough period of time over which the data is collected and updated.
Annual compensation for RCD Director and Employee positions can be found on the Government Compensation in California website.
Our budget is funded primarily through competitive local, state, and federal grant programs (approximately 85%). We also receive funding through parcel tax revenue, professional service agreements, donations from our community and occasionally foundations. Our budget is prepared each year for the fiscal year (July 1- June 30) and is approved by our board of directors. You can read about the current year’s budget below. You can also see a summary financial report on page 3 of our annual newsletter, Stewards of the Land, here.
JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion)
The Gold Ridge RCD is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion, diversity, equity, and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents not only part of our culture, but our reputation and achievement as well. In recruiting for our team, we welcome the unique contributions that individuals bring in terms of their education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and beliefs.
At Gold Ridge RCD, each of us contributes to inclusion—we all have a role to play. Our culture is the result of our behaviors, our personal commitment, our curiosity, how we collaborate, and the ways that we courageously share our perspectives and encourage others to do the same. In turn, our inclusive culture inspires us to try new things, speak openly, and be bold. It brings us together in ways that help us stand out. Our inclusive culture empowers all of us to connect, belong, and grow.
